    According to Universal Tv Brian Joubert has been very strong in practice!!!!!!
    Are the judges and Tech Panel watching practice sessions? They could argue seeing a favorite splat in the SP and say the splat should not count becaue it was landed in practice.

    That's what I'm thinking. Maybe in Sochi.

    Yu-na's still throwing those triples like doubles. Gorgeous 3Lz-3T Sigh, I seriously missed Yu-na's crisp, monstrous jumps. Few can match her in that department.

    Hope she doesn't disappoint. I've been waiting for her since last March. Her programs seem promising & she seems to be in great shape. Here's for hoping her the best!

    No wonder Plushenko's been confident about quintuples being imminent in the future (as well as quad axels )

    Have you seen this? Japanese TV coverage of practices.
    High quality vid and VERY enjoyable in many ways. (Sorry for not translating all the comments because of lack of time.)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aPPjMGP-bZ8

    In this clip, one of the guys criticizes Yuna's jumps - 'not very good axis for jumps' etc - and the other guy is just hilarious.
    "It's not about techniques... but how much the ladies have matured."

    Murakami looks pretty here.

    Kozuka has a black ribbon on his sleeve. Japanese skaters are still in mourning.

    Hey sunny0760 I wouldn't have wasted your Japanese language skills (presumably not for the affection for the culture) on translating these 'commentators'. As you may know neither of them has anything to do with the sport but they're mere TV personalities. The cross dresser guy ミッツマングローブ's comment goes more like "(I'm more interested in) the drama of the battle of the girls."

    That said both Miki and Yu-na look in great shape, with the former doing 3sal/3loop and the latter 3lz/3lp and 3flip! Mao's 3f/2lp looks great too. Bring it on!!!

    I heard Japanese skaters would attend the Worlds with black ribbons and stickers that say " Live again, Japan!" on their wear.
    I'm not sure the "wear" means costumes or training wear or team uniforms, though.

    Me too, I like how she picked the really powerful parts of the Giselle score. I was afraid it would be the pretty ballerina cuts and well frankly I think the powerful parts suit Yuna's huge jumps and passionate footwork to a T.

    I hope Universal Sports uploads a higher quality video--that one was a bit too jerky for me. But so awesome that we finally got see her SP!

    Probably because Yu-na's gazillion fans are clogging the traffic. Try again in an hour or two.
